A change in leadership is being planned for the state’s northernmost community college. In July, White Mountains Community College (WMCC) anticipates the arrival of an interim college president, as current President Katharine Eneguess takes on a new professional opportunity with the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) that will be announced separately.
CCSNH Chancellor Ross Gittell commented to college advisory board, faculty and staff that “over the past few months in my visits to WMCC, there have been very good discussions about the future of WMCC. There are opportunities to grow enrollment, advance economic opportunities and serve the needs of the region. I have been encouraged by my meetings with faculty and staff and by the quality and commitment of the leadership team President Eneguess has assembled. In her decade at the college, President Eneguess has contributed significantly to WMCC, the North Country and to the Community College System of NH. Her contributions are well recognized and appreciated locally, across the state and nationally.”
According to Gittell, for the past year he and Eneguess have been involved in discussions focused on having her serve in a new capacity that takes advantage of her experiences at WMCC and her relationships statewide and nationally. “This summer, Kathy will be making a transition to an exciting new position within CCSNH, the details of which will be announced shortly. President Eneguess will be leaving her current position on June 30. An interim president will be announced prior to her leaving,” said Gittell.
Gittell reiterated, as he has stated on his visits to the college, that he and the CCSNH board are committed to supporting a strong future for WMCC.
“Details about plans for President Eneguess' transition and about the WMCC president's position will be announced soon. The plans will ensure an effective progression towards the goals we share for a strong WMCC serving the North Country,” Gittell said.
